budgets they have gone up under president obama and have held at $3.5 billion each year. >> i got to go. we can continue it another time. >> but it is also economic growth which it self might be a function of taxes and spending. if this economy were growing, you would have a substantially lower budget deficit. gentlemen we will welcome you back another time. >> there is at least one state in the northeast that gets it. natural gas shale and it is pennsylvania and the republican governor tom corebet is about to join us. he picks up support from chuck schumer who didn't get an apology for the anti-israel statements. if we were growing at 5% instead of 2% we would be close to a balanced budget today. i'm kudlow we will be right back. at 1:45, the aflac duck was brought in with multiple lacerations to the wing and a fractured beak. surgery was successful, but he will be in a cast until it is fully healed, possibly several months. so, if the duck isn't able to work, how will he pay for his living expenses? aflac. like his rent and car payments? aflac. what about gas and groceries? aflac. cel
, you know, boehner doesn't want to give obama a free lunch on the debt ceiling. they did that a year ago, they still haven't passed the se yestercuts. what i'm saying, why not at least launch a compromise? obama has compromised before in the past. heck, he's even voted against the debt ceiling in the past. >> well, we clearly need a compromise. we need to reduce spending, we need to impose tough statutory budget controls. need a real credit card, that's constitutional limit. we're the only country on earth that has a debt ceiling limit. so let's get real and try to do something that's more -- that's more appropriate and more effective than we have had in the past. ultimately we need to build a bridge to a grand bargain later this year which includes social insurance reforms and comprehensive tax reform. that will make it simpler, fairer, more competitive and generate more revenues. >> you know, on that taxes, i am just beside myself with the desire to have business tax cuts. large and small business tax cuts. i think we should have done this four years ago. >> i definitely think that
kids 30 years old. i don't know if you want to blame president obama for that, that's strange, but you can do so. this was a qualitatively different type of recession. he had a housing bubble, it collapsed. that was not the nature of the recession in '74, '75, '81, '82. those were easy to get out of. easy to have strong growth because the fed deliberately raised interest rates to ease the economy. lower interest rates, then you get a big boom in housing. you can't have that when you have the recession brought on by the housing bubble. >> okay. i've been become a spending hawk right now. i'll get to taxes in a minute, but look, all this government spending we are actually paying people not to work. and i think this is so bad for our economy as well as our moral fiber. just some points, food stamps. in the last two years food stamp recipients are gone up 7.2%. and that's a period when the unemployment rate fell. then you can walk through social security disability insurance. you can walk through lengthy unemployment insurance. pell grants have kept -- keep people out of college rather th
